THE MARRIAGE OF EDWARD SOUTHWORTH 
AND ALICE CARPENTER 

With notes by The Editor 

f 

Through the cooperation of Mr. Morton Dexter, and at 
the expense of the Massachusetts Society's Foreign Research 
Fund, we have secured a photograph of the record at Leyden 
of the marriage of Edward Southworth and Alice Carpenter, 
which is reproduced in the accompanying illustration. This 
marriage is entered in Echt Book B., folio 21, verso, of the 
Leyden records and is the first entry on the page. 

From the literal copy here given it will be seen that the 
intention of marriage was entered on 4 May, 161 3, which was 
on Saturday, that the banns were published on the three 
succeeding Saturdays, and that the marriage took place on 
Tuesday, 28 May, 161 3. 

The use of the terms " Jongman " and " jonge Dochter " 
in the record of the intention proves that this was the first 
marriage of both bride and groom, therefore the description 
of the witness Samuel Fuller as " zyn zwager " demands 
special notice. 

According to Henry Hexam's English-Dutch and Dutch- 
English Dictionary, published in 1658 and 1660, the word 
"zwager" meant either father-in-law, son-in-law or brother-in- 
law, as we use these terms at the present time. L T nless, 
therefore, the use of the word "zwager" in 1658 was not 
the same as in 161 3 it is important to determine why Samuel 
Fuller was called the "zwager" of Edward Southworth. 
Unless the recording officer made an error, Samuel Fuller 
was either the father-in-law, the son-in-law or the brother-in- 
law of Edward Southworth on 4 May, 161 3. The record 



2 Marriage of Edward Southworth and Alice Carpenter 

plainly states that this was Edward Southworth 's first mar- 
riage, therefore the relationship must have been that of 
brother-in-law and could only have arisen through a marriage 
of Samuel Fuller. 

On 24 April, 1613, Samuel Fuller was married to Agnes 
Carpenter [ante, VIII, 129] and was called in the record of 
his intention the " widower of Alice Glascock." Edward 
Southworth was one of the witnesses and was called his 
"acquaintance" and not "his brother-in-law." 

The most probable explanation of these conflicting state- 
ments is that the recording officer, in entering Edward South- 
worth's intention of marriage, omitted the word M toecomend " 
before "zwager," which would have made the record read "zyn 
toecomend 2 wager " — "'his future brother-in-law." As Samuel 
Fuller had married Alice Carpenter's sister Agnes only ten 
days before this record was made, this designation would have 
been correct.

COOKE NOTES 

By the Editor 

Under the general title of " Cooke Notes " we shall print, 
from time to time, abstracts from the numerous notes made 
by the Editor, from original records and documents, relating 
to the descendants of Francis Cooke. The notes printed in 
this series will be selected with especial reference to their im- 
portance in establishing lines of descent from Francis Cooke. 

The following abstracts from the Plymouth Colony Records 
of Deeds cover conveyances from John 2 Cooke {Francis 1 ) of 
Dartmouth to his sons-in-law Thomas Taber, Philip Taber, 
Daniel Wilcocks and Arthur Hathaway. Another son-in-law, 
Stephen West, is mentioned in John 2 Cooke's will printed in 
our third volume. 

On iy July, 1673, John 2 Cooke conveyed land to Philip and 
Mary Taber, and the deed was recorded in Volume III, pages 
324 and 325. The deed was found to be defective and an 
additional deed was made, both the old and the new deeds 
being recorded on page 339 of the same volume. In the first 
recording of the old deed a portion was omitted. In re-record- 
ing, this error was not made. 

[John 2 Cooke to Thomas Taber] 

[Plym. Col. Deeds, ¥1467] On 21 May, 1672, John Cooke, 
yeoman, of Dartmouth, his wife Sarah relinquishing her rights, 
" in Consideration of the Love and affection I bear unto my 
Loving .Son in Law Thomas Tabor" of Dartmouth, mason, con- 
veyed to Tabor "one third part of one whole Share of upland 
And the fourth part of a whole share of meadow Lands " in 
Dartmouth, also " a third part of meadow land that doth belong 
to me the aforesaid John Cooke with the Rest of the freemen 
as will appear upon Record." 

This deed was acknowledged by John and Sarah Cooke 
before Thomas Hinckley, Assistant, and was witnessed by John 
Tomson and Daniel Wilcox, the latter signing by a mark. It 
was recorded 22 January, 169 1/2, by Samuel Sprague, Recorder. 

[John 2 Cooke to Daniel Wilcocks] 

[Plym. Col. Deeds, III : 325] On 17 July, 1673, John Cooke,

abeth my Daughter now wife to the said Daniell Wilcockes," 
one-fourth of a whole share of lands and meadows, divided 
and undivided, in Dartmouth, also " my two shares of land 
in Punckateesett." 

The deed was witnessed by Thomas Taber and William 
Palmer, and was acknowledged before James Brown, Assistant.

Tabor " mason, of Dartmouth, conveys to "Phillip Tabor and 
Mary my Daughter now wife to the said Phillip Tabor " a par- 
cel of land in Dartmouth containing fifty acres, with all the 
meadow land belonging to it, also "the full Right propriety 
and Interest of one fourth p r te of a whole share of lands and 
meddowes undevided within said Township" 

[John 2 Cooke to Philip Taber]

have formerly Given a deed of Gift bearing date y e 17 th of July 
1673 unto my Son in law Phillip Tabor late of Sd Dartmouth 

deceased and whereas" the number of acres of meadow 

to belong to said Philip is not fully expressed in said deed, 
he declares that eighteen acres of meadow shall belong to the 
land expressed in said deed. Also whereas ten acres of upland 
more than expressed in the deed has been laid out and recorded 
to said Philip, John Cooke freely confirms said ten acres " unto 
y e heirs of the said Phillip Tabor .... The said ten acres of 
upland Recorded unto y e sd Phillip Tabor in the Purchasers 
Book of Records " 

This deed was dated 27 February, 1692/3, and acknowl- 
edged the same day before Seth Pope, justice of the peace. 

It was witnessed by John Pope and Thomas Taber, and 
was recorded 19 May, 1693, by Samuel Sprague, Recorder. 

[John 2 Cooke to Arthur Hathaway] 

[Plym. Col. Deeds V : 12] On 26 June, 1674, John Cooke of 
Dartmouth, " for the Naturall love and affection I beare unto 
Sarah hatheway my Naturall Daughter, and unto Arthur hathe- 
way her husband" conveyed to Arthur Hatheway "all my

Right into the within or above mensioned p r sents, and 

all the lands Contained therin ; " 

Witnessed by Daniel Wilcocks, who made his mark, and 
Jonathan Shaw. Acknowledged before Thomas Hinckley, 
Assistant. 

The foregoing was endorsed on a deed from Edward Gray, 
yeoman, of Plymouth, to John Cooke, yeoman, of Dartmouth, 
dated 24 March, 1670, conveying for ,£30 sterling, Gray's "one 

halfe Share lott or portion of land upland and meddow

Plymouth, deceased, "as a purchaser or or oldcomer of this 
Collome," which tract, "Now Called by the name of the Towne 

of Dartmouth was bought from the Indian Sachems 

Called Woosamequin and Wamsutta " by deed of 29 November, 
1652. 

This deed was acknowledged 24 March, 1670, " by Edward 
Gray and his wife " before Thomas Prence, Governor. It was 
witnessed by John Smith and John Waterman. 

[John 2 Cooke to Arthur Hathaway] 

[Plym. Col. Deeds, VI : 44] On 4 June, 1686, John Cooke, 
yeoman, of Dartmouth, for "love good will and affection" 
conveys "to my loving sonne in law Arthur Haddaway," of 
Dartmouth, " All that my Small percell or Little neck of land " 
in Dartmouth, being about three acres, near the lands of John 
Hayward, Sr., and butting on . Acushnet River, and bounded 
on one side by lands of said Hayward ; Also a way to said land 
as it has been made use of for some time and was formerly 
given to Samuel Cuthbert by the Company's agents and later 
allowed by the Company; as may appear by the court records. 
The deed was acknowledged the same day before John 
Thacher, Assistant. It was witnessed by Nathaniel Clarke 
and William Bassett.

Records from the Winslow Cemetery \ Marshfield 47 



GRAVESTONE RECORDS FROM THE WINSLOW 
CEMETERY AT MARSHFIELD, MASS. 

Communicated by John W. Willard 

In April, 1907, the writer, with the assistance of Messrs. 
Stanley W. Smith, Edward II. Whorf, Arthur E. Linnell and 
Arthur M. Jones, made a literal copy of every inscription dated 
prior to 1 8 5 1 , with a few of later date, then to be found in the 
Winslow Cemetery at Marshfield, Mass. In order that there 
might be no opportunity for errors in copying to escape notice, 
the work of each member of the party was checked by other 
members, and on a second trip to the cemetery, in lire same 
month, an entirely independent set of copies of these inscrip- 
tions was made and verified, and then compared with the work 
done on the first trip. These perfected copies were presented 
to the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, and 
all the genealogical facts contained in the inscriptions will be 
found in the following abstracts. 

A comparison of the abstracts here presented with the 
copies of these inscriptions printed in the New England His- 
torical and Genealogical Register* for October, 1850, by Miss 
Marcia A. Thomas, of Marshfield, discloses a large number of 
errors in her copies. Disregarding entirely the unimportant 
mistakes — those which do not change a name, a statement of 
relationship, a date of death or an age at death — there remain 
nearly fifty errors of varying importance ; and several inscrip- 
tions then more than a century old were omitted. At the 
present time three inscriptions mentioned in Miss Thomas' 
copies cannot be found.

CAPT. EDWARD CHURCH'S WIFE MARTHA THE 
DAUGHTER OF STEPHEN BURTON 

By George Ernest Bowman 

The abstracts from original records presented in the following 
notes prove that Martha, the wife of Capt. Edward Church of 
Bristol * was the daughter of Stephen and Abigail Burton of that 
town, and not the daughter of William 2 Brenton of Newport. 

Stephen Burton's first wife was Abigail 2 Brenton, daughter 
of Gov. William 1 and sister of the William 2 just mentioned and 
of Jahleel 2 Brenton of Newport. Stephen Burton married, 
second, on 4 September, 1684,! Elizabeth the daughter of 
Gov. Josiah and Penelope Winsiow of Marshfield. 

As Martha the widow of Capt. Edward Church died 
14 April, 1750, in her seventy-third year, according to her 
gravestone at Newport, she was born about 1677 or 1678 and 
must have been a daughter of Stephen Burton's first wife. It 
is possible that the age stated on the gravestone is too great 

* At that time a part of Massachusetts, but in 1747 annexed to Rhode Island. 
t Ante, II : 1S3. 



! * 



Capt. Edward Churctis Wife Martha 57 

and that Martha was the nameless daughter whose birth was 
recorded at Boston as " Daughter of Stephen Burton and Abi- 
gail his Wife born '16 October 16S0 " * Since Jahleel 2 Brenton 
calls Martha his niece, in the deed of gift here quoted, she 
could not have been a daughter of Stephen Burton's second 
wife, Elizabeth Winslow. 

The two deeds made in 171 5 show clearly that Thomas Bur- 
ton of Duxbury had received a double portion, in this case one- 
half, of his father's estate, and his. own sister Elizabeth Burton 
and his half sister Martha (Burton) Church had received each 
one-fourth. In the two deeds made in 172S we see the same 
division of Stephen Burton's Dunstable land. The remaining 
abstracts prove that the Martha Church of the preceding deeds 
was the widow of Capt. Edward Church and the mother of 
Benjamin Church, of Newport and Boston, and of Abigail the 
wife of George Wanton of Newport.

"JAN TELLIJ" OF LEYDEN 
WAS NOT JOHN TILLEY OF THE MAYFLOWER 

By George Ernest Bowman 

The accompanying illustration presents trie record of the 
betrothal at Leyden, on 13 February, 1615, of (i Jan Tellij " 
and il Prijntgen Van, den Velde." This record is found in the 
"Kerkelicke Huwelycke Proclaraatie Boeck," folio 48 verso, 
with other betrothals of the same date. The marriage took 
place on 3 March, 161 5, 

The betrothal record reads as follows : 

[The Dutch Record] 

Jan Tellij Saeywercker Jongman van Leyden vergeseischapt met 
Paulas Telly zyn vader 

met 

Prijntgen Van den Velde Jonge dochter mede van Leijden verge- 
seischapt met Maeychen Tay haer moeder 

[The English Translation] 

John Telly, say weaver, single man. of Leyden, accompanied by 
Paul Telly his father, 

with 

Pryntgen Van den Velde, single woman, also of Leyden, accom- 
panied by Maeychen Tay her mother. 

The use of the terms " Jongman," meaning single man, or 
bachelor, and " Jonge dochter," meaning single woman, proves 
that neither "Jan Tellij " nor " Prijntgen Van den Velde" had 
ever been married before. 

Elizabeth Tilley came in the Mayflower with her father, 

65 



66 "Jan TeUij" of Ley den Was Not John Tilley 

John Tilley, and later married John Howland. The date of 
her marriage is unknown, but her son John 2 Howland, born 
24 February, 1626/7,* and her daughter Desire 2 Howland, 
whose birth date is unknown, were both living on 22 May, 
i627.f Unless these children were twins, which seems un- 
likely from the meager data obtainable, Desire 2 must have been 
born as early as February, 1625/6. Whether or not they were 
twins, it is certain that on 24 February, 1626/7, Elizabeth 
(Tilley) Howland was the mother of two children. Jn her will, 
dated 17 December, 16S6, she called herself " Seventy nine 
yeares of Age but of good & perfect memory," J thus fixing 
her own birth date as about 1607, or 160S. As the statement 
of the will is supported by the known facts regarding her chil- 
dren, and nothing has been found which casts any doubt upon 
it, we must accept it as correct. But even if we did not have 
the statement of the will by which to fix the age of Elizabeth 
Tilley, it is evident that she must have been born before 
3 March, 161 5, otherwise she would have become the mother 
of two children before she was twelve years of age. Since 
Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland was born before 3 March, 161 5, 
she could not have been a daughter either of "Jan Tellij " or 
of " Prijntgen Van den Velde " who were married on that date, 
neither having been married before. 

The only known contemporary references to the parentage 
of Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland are found in Bradford's History. 
In the list of the Mayflower Passengers he mentions her three 
times, as follows : 

" John Tillie, and his wife ; and Eelizabeth their doughter " 

" John Howland maried the doughter of John Tillie, Elizabeth, 

and they are both now living ; " 

"John Tillie, and his wife both dyed, a little after they came 

ashore ; and their daughter Elizabeth maried with John Howland " § 

These statements were written by Governor Bradford while 
John Howland and his wife were still living in Plymouth, 
where all three had lived for more than thirty years, and Brad- 
ford must then have had his own manuscript " register 

recording some of the first deaths, marriages and punishments," 
which Rev. Thomas Prince obtained from the Governor's grand- 
son, Major John Bradford, and referred to so frequently in his 
New England Chronology, published in 1736. Governor Brad- 
ford was in a position to know the facts. Therefore, as no

Records from Cemetery Number One, Provincetown 6/ 

evidence has yet been produced to controvert his statements, 
we must accept them as they have come down to us in his 
own handwriting. 

It has been shown that Elizabeth (Tilley) Rowland was not 
the daughter of " Jan. Tellij," the Leyden bridegroom of 1615; 
and on the other hand it has been shown that she was the 
daughter of John Tilley of the Mayflower. It is evident, there- 
fore, that "Jan Tellij " and John Tilley were not identical, but 
were two entirely distinct individuals.

Wee whose Names are underwritten having been for a 
Considerable Time United together in the Bonds of Church

Agree, to Renew, and Express, our Church Covenant, In the 
Words, or Tearmes hereafter Mentioned ; And Thereupon 
Under a Soul humbling Sence of our Unworthiness of being 
in Covenant with God, and our Insufficiency to keep Covenant

[Continued from page j6) 

[Samuel Winslow, 1745] 

[Sufi. Co. Prob. Files] On 6 December, 1745, "John Winslow 

of Boston Shopkeeper " was appointed administrator on 

the intestate estate of "your Brother Samuel Winslow late of 
Boston aforesaid Merchant, but last a Midshipman on Board 
his Majesty's Ship of War the Vigilant " The original letter 
is preserved in the files. It is also entered in Volume 38, 
page 232, of the records. 

The original administrator's bond of " John Winslow Shop- 
keeper Edward Winslow Esq r and Isaac Winslow Merchant all 
of Boston," dated 6 December, 1745, is the only other paper 
in the files. 

[William Winslow, 1746] 

[Suff. Co. Prob. Files] The only original papers relating to 
the estate of William Winslow now in the files are the letter 
of administration (also recorded, 39 : 217), the administrator's 
bond and his account. The letter was issued on 27 October, 

1746, to "Isaac Winslow of Boston Merchant" on 

the estate of "Your Brother William Winslow late of Boston

The bond is dated 28 October, 1746, with "Joseph Dowse

page 29, the date was correctly entered as "Jan*." In this 
account are found charges "for representing the Estate In-

Settlement of Estate of Deacon Benjamin Church 119 



THE SETTLEMENT OF THE ESTATE OF 

DEACON BENJAMIN CHURCH 

OF BOSTON 

{Concluded from Vol. VIII, p. jS) 

The only record of the death of Deacon Benjamin Church 
we have been able to find is contained in the following item 
from the issue for Thursday, 11 October, 1781, of "The Con- 
tinental Journal and Weekly Advertiser," which was published 
in Boston. 

" Died Yesterday afternoon, Deacon Benjamin Church, of this 
town : His Funeral proceeds To-Morrow afternoon, at half past 
Three, when his friends and acquaintance are desired to attend/' 

The letter of administration issued to his widow, dated 
17 October, 17S1, is recorded in Book. 80, page 568. 

Attached to the original inventory is a list of over two 
hundred books in English. Latin, Greek, Hebrew and French. 
This list was not recorded. 

The first account of the executrix is dated 6 August, 17S2, 
The first item bears date 11 October, 1781. The only persons 
mentioned are as follows : " Paid Sarah Curtis 4 days attend- 
ance & helping Lay out the deceased"; "paid Caty Wyer 
assist? d°"; "Paid Lydia Bixby 5 weeks nurs? the deceased"; 
"paid Doct r Warrens Bill"; "paid Doct r Lloyds Bill" [The 
original account is still on file. It is also recorded, Si : 375.] 

On 6 August, 1782, John Winniet, Jacob Wendell and Jacob 
Cooper were appointed commissioners to examine claims against 
the estate of u Benjamin Church late of Boston in said County 
Auctioneer deceased" represented insolvent. The original war- 
rant is attached to the report of the commissioners, still in the 
files. The report, which is not dated, calls Benjamin Church 
a "Merchant" and finds the estate indebted to "the late Compv 
of Stephen & W ra Greenleaf " : Henry Johnson; "To Benjamin 
& John Bowers of Manchester for ballance of a Note of Hand 
payable to Ed. Church or order by him indorsed over to Wil- 
liam Pollard or order " ; Estate of Charles Apthorp, deceased ; 
David Jeffries, Trustee for the creditors of Gamaliel Wallis ; 
Edward Giles, painter ; James Cunningham ; James & William 
Cunningham; John McLane ; Doctor James Lloyd; "James 



120 Settlement of Estate of Deacon Benjamin Church 

Thompson on Obligation with Nutting &c " ; Estate of Dr. 
John Stedman. [The warrant and report are also on record, 
82 : 267, 268.] 

In the files we -find also "A List, of Debts .... of Benja- 
min Church late of Boston Gentleman/' endorsed "n* to be 
recorded," which was presented by Hannah Church, executrix. 
It is not dated, but was made up on or after n August, 1782. 
The creditors named are: "Thomas Lee on Note dated May r . 
177 1 . "; "the late Company of Stephen & W m Greenleaf " ; 
Henry Johnson; James Thompson on bond and interest to 
11 August, 17S2; Edward Giles; Estate of Charles Ward 
Apthorp ; Doctor James Lloyd ; John McLane. Attached to 
this list is a bill presented 21 December, 17S2, by Ebenezer 
Stedman, administrator on the estate of Dr. John Stedman, for 
dressing Deacon Church's head on 14, 16, 18, and 21 October, 
1776, and prescription on 27 and 28 of same month. 

The second account of the executrix, dated 8 April, 17S3, 
mentions receipts from Samuel Cookson, Joseph Payson, and 
Abijah Hammond ; also payments to " Perez Morton for Costs 
Execution vs Poster." [This is also recorded, 82 : 266.] 

On 8 April, 1783, as the report of the commissioners 
showed claims of ,£1154 lis. ;d., and the balance in the 
hands of the executrix was but ^£129 3s. /id., the executrix was 
ordered to pay the creditors at the rate of 2s. 2|d. on the 
pound, " saving to each of the Creditors a proportion of such 
Other Estate as Shall hereafter Appear, upon any further 
Account to be rendred thereof " [This order is recorded, 
82 : 269.] 

Deacon Benjamin Church's widow Hannah, who had been 
executrix of his will, died in March or April, 1794, without 
having completed the settlement of his estate. Her will was 
made 16 March and proved 15 April, 1794. In it she men- 
tioned Sally, eldest daughter of son Dr. Benjamin Church 
deceased; daughter Hannah Weld; daughter Alice Fleming; 
daughter Abigail Phillips; James and Hannah, children of son 
Dr. Benjamin Church deceased ; Anna, Elizabeth, Maria, Ed- 
ward, Sally and Fanny, children of son Edward Church, Esq. ; 
Elizabeth, daughter of son Dr. Giles Church deceased ; Samuel 
and John Waldo sons of daughter Mary Cookson deceased; and 
she made her two sons-in-law, Samuel Cookson and Turner 
Phillips, and her friend Allen Crocker, executors. [Suffolk 
Co. Prob. Records, 93 : 217.] 

On 13 Ma\', 1794, Turner Phillips and Abigail his wife and 
Samuel Cookson, ail of Boston, were cited to appear at the 



Settlement of Estate of Deacon- Benjamin Church 12 1 

probate ofhec on 20 May, 1794, to show cause, it any, why 
letters of administration de bonis non should not be granted 
to Edward Weld, on the estate of Benjamin Church. Attached 
to the foregoing is the administrator's bond of Edward Weld, 
shopkeeper, with Benjamin W T eld, gentleman, and Ebenezer T. 
Andrews, printer, as sureties. Neither paper is recorded. 

On 27 May, 1794, Edward Weld was ordered to advertise 
his appointment as administrator de bonis non in Adams and 
Larkins' Independent Chronicle. On 22 November, 1796, he 
made oath that he had done so on 4 September, 1794. 
[Original papers, and 94 : 596] 

On 27 May, 1794, Hon. Thomas Dawes, Samuel Ruggles 
and Mr. Thomas Bayley, all of Boston, were appointed to 
appraise the estate. On the back of the warrant is the ap- 
praisal, dated 12 September, 1794, of "all the Real Estate 
whereof Benj a Church died seized and possessed Consisting Of 
One Large Brick House & land in Newbury Street in Boston " 
valued at .£1300 Attached to the foregoing is a bill, dated 
12 September, 1794. of Edward Weld, as administrator, against 
the estate of Hannah Church, deceased, " For the Improv- 
ment * of a Large Bubble Brick House in Newbury Street, 
the Estate of the Late Benj n Church for twelve years and Nine 
months at Eighty pounds pr year " [Original papers, also 93 : 

420,421-] 

On 17 June, 1794, George Blake, attorney for Samuel Cook- 
son and Turner Phillips who had objected to the appointment 
of Edward Weld as administrator de bonis non on 27 May, 
1794, and appealed to the Supreme Court of Probate, filed the 
reasons for appealing, viz. : Because by the will of Hannah 
Church said estate belongs to the infant children of Samuel 
Cookson and the wife of Turner Phillips, and because Sam- 
uel Cookson and Turner Phillips are heirs in equal degree with 
Edward Weld. With the foregoing paper is the bond of same 
date by which Samuel Cookson, gentleman, and Turner Phillips, 
gentleman, as principals, with Joseph Crocker, gentleman, and 
Isaac Phillips, mariner, as sureties, are held to prosecute the 
appeal and pay all charges taxed by the court. [Unrecorded 
original papers.] 

On 1 September, 1795, Edward Weld, gentleman, having 
obtained as administrator de bonis non, authority from the 
Supreme Court of Probate to sell the real estate, filed a bond 
for £3000, with Benjamin Weld, merchant, and Ebenezer T. 

* "Improvement of" frequently meant "use of." 



122 Settlement of Estate of Deacon Benjamin Church 

Andrews, printer, both of Boston, as sureties. The bond, also 
the original oath of Edward Weld, dated 2 September, 1795, 
to do his best in selling the estate, are still in the files. There 
is no record of either. 

Under date of 24 May, 1796, Samuel Cookson, trader, of 
Rcxbury, and Turner Phillips, gentleman, of Boston were cited 
to appear, if they see cause, at a probate court to be held at 
Boston on 31 May and present any objections they may have 
to allowing the account of Edward Weld, administrator de bonis 
non. Endorsements on the back of the summons show that 
it was served on Cookson on 26 May, and on Phillips on 
30 May, 1796. 

The summons is attached to an account of Edward Weld 
as administrator de bonis non of " Benj a Church Senior late of 
Boston Gentleman dec d ." The account is dated 1 1 October, 
1796. In October, 1795, he had received ^"1900 from the 
sale of the brick house and land in Newbury St., Boston ; and 
,£19 1 OS. for rent from John Dorr. Payments had been made 
to Ambrose Vincent, Caleb Davis, Esq., Adams & Larkin, and 
for various court expenses. The creditors named in the report 
of the commissioners are all paid, with interest for twelve and 
one-half years. At this date the creditors were named as fol- 
lows : William Greenleaf ; Benjamin & John Bowers, in Eng- 
land ; Charles Ward Apthorp of New York ; Henry Johnson ; 
Estate of David Jeffries, Esq. ; James & William Cunningham ; 
Estate of James Cunningham ; Dr. James Lloyd ; Dr. John 
Stedman ; James Thompson ; John McLane ; Edward Giles. 
A payment is also made to Mary Williams. The account was 
allowed by the probate court on 22 November, 1796. 

Following the account is an unsigned and undated memor- 
andum of legacies left by the will of Benjamin Church. Above 
it is written " Hereunder Not to be Recorded " The children 
and grandchildren are named as in the will, except that <f little 
Betsy," daughter of son Giles, is called Elizabeth, and by mis- 
take the daughter Alice Fleming is called "Elizabeth." As 
John Fleming's wife is called " Alice" both in the will of her 
father and in the will of her mother, there can be no doubt 
that " Elizabeth ." is an error.. Interest for thirteen years was 
calculated on all these legacies, but there is nothing to show 
that any of them were paid. [The administrator's account is 
also recorded, 94 : 593.]

RECORDS OF THE FIRST CHURCH IN ORLEANS, 

FORMERLY THE FIRST CHURCH IN 

EASTHAM, MASS. 

Communicated by Stanley W. Smith 

Early in 1907 the oldest book now known of the records 
of the First Church in Orleans, Mass., was copied at the 
expense of Messrs. John W. Willard, Arthur E. Linnell and 
the writer, and the copy was presented to the Massachusetts 
Society of Mayflower Descendants. This Church is in the 
part of Eastharn which was incorporated, in 1797, as the Town 
of Orleans. We have been unable to find any trace of the 
earlier records referred to on the first page, on which are 
the following entries : 

" Records of the first Chh In Eastharn 1772 " 

" N.B. For former Records, See the other Book of Records." 

Page 2 is blank and page 3, in addition to an index of 
subjects entered in the book, bears the following inscription : 

" Records of the first Chh In Eastharn, begun Oct r AD. 1772 
f Jonathan Bascom who was ordained pastor of S d Chh, Oct r 14 th 
1772. 

N.B. For former records, See the other Books." 

" Records of the Church in Orleans Kept by Daniel Johnson who 
was ordained May the 11-1808." 

In this first article we give the list of church members on 
2 May, 1774.

SOULE 

Alathea, daughter of Joshua and Man', died 20 May, ijy[7oer/:]< 
aged 1 year, 8 months, 22 days. [On stone with brother 
Luther.] 

Esther, wife of John, died 12 September, 1735, aged 95 years, 
6 months, 6 days. 

Joseph, died 11 July, 1763, aged 84 years, "wanting 20 days." 

*A11 but the first letter of the surname is broken off from this stone, also 
the last two figures of the year. Andrew Samson, son of Miles and Sarah, was 
born 28 September, 1714 [Ante 9: 230]; his will was made 5 November, 17S5, 
and it was proved 4 December, 17S6. [Plym. Co. Prob. Reds., 30: 4c, 41.] 
•"Winsor's History of Duxbury, published in 1849, savs on P a S e 3° 2 that this 
Andrew died "Sep. 6, 1776, aet. nearly 72," the age given clearly proving the 
year to be an error for 17S6. Vinton's Giles Memorial, published in 1864, says 
on page 403 that this Andrew died "Sept. 6, 1786, ae. 72." The portion broken 
off from the stone was too narrow for the name to have been Southworth, and 
it seems to be clear that this is the stone of Andrew Samson. — Editor.

RECORDS OF THE FIRST CHURCH OF 
SOTUATE, MASS. 

[Continued from page gd) 

In this issue we give about one-half of the baptisms by 
Rev. Nathaniel Pitcher. The dates of these baptisms were 
entered in columns, headed "Day. Mo: yeare," or other abbre- 
viation or spelling. In every case the day of the month is 
given in the first column, and the number of the month in the 
second column, therefore it has seemed unwise to increase the 
spaee required, and the expense of composition, by printing in 
table form, and in the following pages the day, month and 
year are separated by periods instead of being placed in 
ruled vertical columns.

RECORDS FROM THE DUCK CREEK CEMETERY, 
WELLFLEET, MASS, 

Communicated by Stanley W. Smith 

In July, 1905, with the assistance of Mr. John W. Willard, 
the writer made copies of all inscriptions dated prior to 1851, 
■with a few of later date, found in the Duck Creek Cemetery 
in Wellfleet, Mass., on the road to the village of South Well- 
fleet. We are indebted to Mr. Arthur H. Rogers, Town Clerk 
•of Wellfleet, for a partial copy of these inscriptions, which we 
.have verified by the stones themselves. In September, 1907, 
the cemetery was again visited, and all the copies were carefully 
compared with the stones by Messrs. John W. Willard, Edward 
H. Whorf and the writer. 

In the following abstracts will be found all the genealogical 
facts contained in these copies, which were presented to the 
Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants.
